Mystic Theme - Bringing Hope

This is a photo of a painting we own done by Yakov Smirnoff, a Russian immigrant who, while he works as a well-known comedian, is also quite an accomplished artist.

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

One of our favorite pieces - especially with the poignant Emma Lazarus words.
